This updated field coat from Hugo Boss offers endless versatility, making it a spring must-have. It’s a contemporary fit, but still easy enough to work over a suit or sport coat.

This luxury jacket from Burberry Brit solves all your spring coat needs. Truly. The zip front anorak style is long enough to wear over a suit or sport coat, and is also casual enough to wear with jeans or khaki’s in its simplicity and clean lines. It is water resistant, with a hood – certainly a perk when those unexpected spring showers pop up. And the modern fit looks great on most gents, so you’ll have it for years to come.

Stutterheim Raincoats, a Stockholm based company, is famous for it’s well made, functional and understated raincoats. This hooded slicker style is inspired by those originally worn by Danish fishermen, but they’ve certainly found a way to make it fresh and modern. The cotton/poly fabric has a PVC coating, and the seams are sealed, creating a waterproof and stylish finish. And there’s nothing beating this perfect shade of grey – it goes with everything, and is quite a fresh fashion color for a slicker.

A 3-in-1 style makes for an ideal transitional piece that provides so much versatility. This one from Vince has a navy quilted vest that you can wear as the inner layer of the jacket, but it’s so good looking you can absolutely wear it on its own, too. And, of course the outer field coat is simply amazing with or without it, and has its own great details like a double vented back and utilitarian pockets. The contemporary fit creates a more polished finish, since it’s not over-sized and bulky, but a sweater will still easily fit underneath. The basil green color reads neutral, and looks great with khaki’s, navy, and jeans.

There is no beating Canada Goose when it comes to knowing how to deal with the elements. They are a go-to for warm winter puffer jackets. And for spring? Their anorak jacket is equally world class. While designed for an outdoor hike, it is a perfect jacket for your weekends spent in the park or running errands. It is waterproof, yet breathable, so it will keep you dry and comfortable in the heaviest down pour. There is no disputing the high quality and durability. The colors are pretty amazing, too (check them out through the ‘shop it’ button).

Building on the athletic influence in everyday dressing, baseball-style jackets (also called varsity or bomber jackets) are prominent this spring. It’s a great way to incorporate the look, in a modern but not “trendy” way. J. McLaughlin’s modern fit version is a favorite. The pima cotton blue/grey color is an ideal weekend color with jeans or shorts. And the classic striping on the knit collar and cuffs adds just that special touch. Add a t-shirt or polo shirt and you are ready to go.

J. Crew - Lightweight Vest with Primaloft®
Quilted vests are not only functional, they’ve become a fashionable outerwear option almost year round. They are great over a sweater or sweatshirt, while the weather is still cooler, but look great over a patterned button up shirt, too – an easy weekend or evening option with jeans, twill pants, or even nicer sweats. J. Crew offers some amazing colors – we love this bolder wreath green. And they use Primaloft® filling, which will keep you as warm as down filling, but is much more lightweight and slim – perfect for spring. Best of all is the vest’s packable feature. You can fold it up in its zipper pocket to throw in your bag or suitcase.
